New World Symphony is pleased to host the 2015 annual holiday drive for Lotus House, a shelter for women and children.
Established in 2006, Lotus House has provided free shelter to over 165 women, youth and children experiencing homelessness daily as residents of Miami-Dade County. Lotus House also offers access to a range of support systems, tools and resources to help uplift and empower residents to heal, grow and build the foundation of a new life.
Lotus House will join New World Symphony on the lawn at SoundScape Park during two upcoming WALLCAST™ concerts, presented by Citi to accept donations:
• “Music of Vienna” on Saturday, Dec. 12
• “The Sounds of the Season” on Saturday, Dec. 19

• Toys for children ages one-month to 10-years-old (no toy weapons and no Barbie dolls, please)
